Spike TV has revealed a first look at Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s roast tribute to legendary comedian Don Rickles -- and it's packed with the charm and laughs people have come to expect from the dynamic duo.

Fey revealed her and Poehler’s involvement in Spike’s “One Night Only: An All-Star Comedy Tribute to Don Rickles” during a segment on “Late Night With Seth Meyers" earlier this month. Apparently the women had only been at the famous Apollo Theater, where the 90-minute special was taped, for about a minute before they were pushed on stage.

Spike also released a few other clips from the roast that feature Tracy Morgan, Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro and the man himself, Don Rickles. (Watch below.)

Among the other talents who showed up to show their respect to Rickles were David Letterman, Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Stewart, Jimmy Kimmel, John Stamos, Bob Newhart, Regis Philbin, Ray Romano and Brad Garrett.




Spike’s tribute to Don Rickles airs May 28 at 9/8c.
